About this book

This edited volume presents new means of quantifying the behavioral and consequential differences between technology-based and non-technology-based nascent entrepreneurs in varied economies. It explores the socioeconomic place of technology in developed and developing countries, and describes the implications of this research for policymakers' ability to identify and support new areas of economic growth. This book also examines technology-based nascent entrepreneurship issues in the context of entrepreneurial leadership, business incubation, ethnic migrants, university researchers, new venture formation activities, student entrepreneurship, and start-up competitions. The contributors to this collection provide valuable insights for the growing study of and expanding policies addressing nascent entrepreneurship.
